Gamecode magazine advert

During my time as a Senior Designer within the Creative Services department at NCsoft Europe Ltd one of the things I became known for were my character line-ups… so naturally I ended up doing a lot of them. Each game we published had its own illustration/render style so each asset had to be coloured, scaled and individually lit to fit seamlessly into the compositions.

The character line-up shown here was for use in Polish Internet cafés promoting NCsoft Game Time Codes. This design had to have a very different feel from any previously adverts so a new background scene had to be fabricated with a very different look and feel to it for this particular market and this choice of a moonlit hilltop proved to be a challenge when it came to lighting the characters effectively.
